There is more to do with SMS than just delivering bulk messages. There are lots of different response mechanisms and delivery strategies that can help your business get the best possible return for its marketing dollar. SMS marketing can not only help you promote your business but can help it communicate more effectively with customers and staff. Here are just a few ideas:
Bulk SMS is a great way to deliver sale alerts to people when they are out and about. Saturdays are popular shopping days and you can expect recipients to be nearby. Send them a special offor or coupon via SMS and get them into the store.
Increase your sales exponentially. People often won’t think about something until its right in front of them. SMS advertising at the right time will put your product or sevice right in front of them.
Reduce your missed appointments and phone bill by sending SMS reminders. You can receive direct confrimations by keyword lowering the amount of secretarial resources required to handle appoinments.
Use computer sms to send out automated reminders on a schedule, run events more successfully and get delegates where they need to be on time.
